'Together We Can Do More!' Was the last word said by H.E. Sjahril Sabaruddin, the Ambassador of the Republic of Indonesia in Pretoria in his closing remarks during his discussion with Hon. Dr. Zweli Mkhize, Premier of Kwazulu Natal Province on 6 June 2013 in Durban. The meeting between the two government officials was held during the preparation discussion for the visit of the trade mission from the Kwazulu Natal province which will take place at the end of August 2013.
The trade mission plan is an effort by the Embassy of Indonesia in increasing the economic cooperation, trade, investment, tourism and technical cooperation between the government of Indonesia and South Africa. The trade mission plan is also an attempt to create greater business contacts between businesspeople from both countries especially Indonesia and the province of Kwazulu Natal.
Ambassador Sabaruddin also said that the Embassy will assist in facilitating the Kwazulu Natal trade mission in planning their visit to Indonesia in order for the mission to focus the potential and the economic opportunities which will be mutually beneficial for the two governments.
Premier Zweli Mkhize said that he would lead the Kwazulu Natal economic mission to Indonesia since Indonesia is considered as one of the most influential countries in Asia which has great potential for South Africa and will take advantage of this mission and expect to bring concrete results from this visit.
In preparing for the Kwazulu Natal delegation visit to Indonesia, Premier Mkhize immediately formed a technical team consisting of elements from the Kwazulu Natal provincial government officials and the Trade and Investment Kwazulu Natal as their focal point. It added that the mission will include elements of government officials and the business community from the Kwazulu Natal province.
